    Question Removing columns on spreadsheet for reconciliation

    I am constantly opening transaction history in excel from M&T bank

    I am strictly posting credits to the account

    I want to remove the debits column and all of its corresponding rows as well keeping only the credits

    How do I do this

    Re: Removing columns on spreadsheet for reconciliation

    Without seeing the worksheet it's a bit of a guess. But one approach

    Use Data filter
    - apply filter on debit column
    - select the individual values in debit column
    - delete all those rows

    should leave you with everything you want

    EDIT
    and I should have also added - then delete the debit column

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    If all the data you want to remove is in 1 (or more) column(s), and that column does not contain data you want t keep, click on the column letter at the top, and then either rt-click and select Delete, or click the Delete button on the Home tab/Editing/Delete
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools

    Re: Removing columns on spreadsheet for reconciliation

    Put cursor in cell with text= "Trans Date".
    Then click on DATA tab
    Then click on "Filter"
    Then click on the arrow at the top of the Debit column
    Then select each individual value
